Dana did an outstanding inspection of our soon-to-be home. The peace of mind that having a professional, objective eye placed on the house is a great value to both Dianne and I. He was extremely thorough, from crawling on roofs, to inspecting every appliance/receptacle/switch, to researching the age of the hvac system was impressive. He took us through finding by finding, showing problem and solution as well as cost and urgency. His report is very professional and gave us the tools we needed to make a sound decision on our new home! You need peace of mind when buying a home. We recommend Dana highly! Thanks again! B.T.

Dana is knowledgeable and easily and readily passes that knowledge on to you. Even a brief conversation with him gives you the firm impression that his number one concern is that your house is safe and that you know what you need to keep it safe and in good condition. K.B.

Everything. The knowledge and time taken to explain findings or future issues is amazing. The thoroughness of the inspection and following report is extremely high quality, and as a first time home owner, I had a lot of questions, and Dana was patient and answered all my questions!!! I would recommend them to anyone who needs or wants a home inspection!!!! K.M.

As a first time homebuyer, I can rest easy knowing of any issues or potential problems now that the property has been thoroughly inspected by Dana.

I am a very attention to detail oriented person, so it was nice having a second set of eyes that looks at things the same way I do. Dana was very knowledgeable and helpful. N.K.W.

The report is easily read, and the colored font that describes the degree of importance to monitor or the seriousness of an issue aids the buyer tremendously. It is extremely helpful that your report numbers the items. That makes for a more precise repair addendum that we (REALTORS) very often must complete to present to sellers. B.E.

We received a very comprehensive inspection from a highly skilled professional. Our inspector, Dana, walked us through our house and pointed out the items he found during the inspection and gave us very helpful information as to how to fix them or who could perform the repairs for us (i.e. plumber, electrician, et cetera). Our report was very comprehensive and left nothing to chance. This was our first experience with Dana and we are very happy with the service we received. S.E.P.

I had my daughter with me and he told me specifically why things were a concern, especially having a young child in the home. S.G.

The inspection was extremely thorough and detailed. The inspection report was well formatted and applied directly to property. The images included in the inspectors report made it very clear as to where some maintenance issues may arise in the future. Although the property was relatively sound, the inspection allowed me to plan for future maintenance upgrades without having to find out about them the hard way, i.e. when they break. K.S.

Dana was wonderful. He explained everything in person and in his report. He did exactly what we paid him to do. Although, the listing agent didn't agree. I am very sorry about that. We appreciate your service and saving us money!!! J.M.

Promptness, knowledge, friendliness, compassionate about your work. Thanks for the great job with both our homes!!! G.P.K.

The inspection of my house was done with professionalism and care. Nowadays companies try to get by with charging the most, while providing the fastest cheapest service possible. Home Inspections by Dana is one of the few that is quite the opposite. The friendliness, diligence, and pride that was shown to me throughout the whole process is incredible. I would recommend Dana to anyone looking for a quality inspection provided by quality people. R.K.

They were very efficient in completing the report and getting it to us immediately. The findings helped us determine what repairs were needed and also gave us peace of mind regarding the investment we are about to make. S.H.

I was impressed with the thoroughness and professionalism exhibited by your inspector. But what especially got my attention, was the information provided in your report that went above and beyond a mere inspection: background information for why certain requirements were in place, regarding electrical, plumbing, foundation, etc. I only wish that information was given to me when I became a new homeowner years ago; it would have alerted me on what to look for, and what improvements to make to insure our home remained in top notch condition, not to mention being more knowledgeable so I could better deal with home contractors I made need in the future, in my own best interest. I highly recommend Dana to all buyers and sellers who need your services. R. C.

Dana was very easy to work with and the inspection report was very detailed and easy to understand. D.H.W.

During your inspection, you questioned the life of the roof and possible problems with the air conditioning and electrical systems. Because of your findings, the seller replaced the roof and made repairs to the air conditioning and electrical systems. That saved me almost $5000!! I closed on the home and am now a proud homeowner. Thank you for your part in making my dream come true! A. V.

We feel your inspector was very detailed/thorough and spent time carefully looking at all details of the home. He took the time to explain details and made suggestions about how we could enhance the home. We felt we had someone looking out for our best interests. We chose you because we wanted a non-biased opinion and heard about your through friends.H & S T.

Your inspector was very thorough and prompt in his inspection. He answered our questions regarding the home without making us feel incompetent, and in a way a homeowner would understand. He gave us easy-to-do tips to help us do minor repairs. You really put our minds at ease and reassured our home-buying decision. We were very pleased. B & D C.

Your findings were a striking contrast to the sellers disclosed condition of the home. Your findings gave me an accurate assessment of the home and saved me thousands of dollars that otherwise, I would not have been aware of until I purchased and occupied the home. I can't thank you enough for your valuable services. S. M.
